New Post

Jackie wrote a couple of posts on "Observations from the Knee-Deep South" you might enjoy.  Click HERE to get there. 

I haven't been doing much lately but going to various appointments for my mother and me.  More interestingly I've been to my granddaughter's awards ceremony and high school graduation.  She's already been accepted to the nursing program at UT-C, which is hard to get into.  Sorry to brag on her, but if you knew what all she's been through the last few years, you'd be proud of her, too.  Yet she managed to graduate with a 4.0 and a semester of college credits. 

My youngest grandson had a ceremony for finishing 4th grade since Nashville begins middle school in 5th grade (too soon!!!).  The boys entered the auditorium and girls in another and then walked up the aisle together with the boys bowing to the girls before they separated and sat on opposite sides.  He, of course, bowed with a flourish.

What was hilarious was their talent show.  Several of them sang and danced.  Mine performed a couple of songs from A Mighty Wind, the Christopher Guest movie.  It was as if he were a seasoned performer and handled the microphone like a pro, interacted with and engaged the audience, and imitated the way the actor did it exactly in the movie.  He's never met a stage he didn't like!  LOL!

And I agree 5th grade is too soon for middle school. My district does that too and all of us a the elementary school cluck like mother hens every time our babies in 4th grade leave us.
